A rarity for sure!
This Bach Artisan Eb was formerly used by the Canadian Brass. An excellent example of the craftsmanship and playability of Bach trumpets, this Eb is a delight to play from top to bottom.
Each Artisan Eb trumpet is made with a one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass bell with a flat rim and special acoustic treatment in both material and manufacturing process resulting in a beautiful Bach Stradivarius sound with a larger core and a broader range of color. The two-piece valve construction with nickel balusters and brass casings harkens back to the construction techniques used by Vincent Bach when making classic Bach trumpets in New York City and Mount Vernon, New York. Monel pistons along with two sets of brass and plastic valve guides offer the player a choice in response and feel. The 3rd valve tone enhancing ring offers yet another choice in response. The 1st slide split ring, enhanced radius ferrules, sculpted bracing, and artistic engraving are all key contributors to the unique response while providing an unparalleled elegance in appearance. Provided with two main tuning slides, the straight and dual slides offer the player a choice is resistance and response. The gold plating of this AE190 provides an incredible mix of brilliance and warmth to the overall sound. These features combined with a unique .462" large bore allow the player to have the ease of playing and feel of a C trumpet but with a warm characteristic sound of an Bb trumpet. Whether playing the Haydn concerto or souring over an orchestra, this Artisan Eb trumpet is the perfect choice.
